Chamber To Ask Time On Sewase Proposals V__' -fl- Several matters relating to Lethbridge's secondary sew- age treatment plant will come before city council tonight. Will' Bowns, general mana- ger of the chamber of com- merce, says in a letter to be submitted to council that pro- posed revisions in sewage charges would appear to have a "serious and detrimental" effect on existing and forth- coming industries in the city. He quotes figures indicating increases to from and to from for sewage charges to two local firms under proposed revisions by the city. The proposed charges, based on figures supplied by Under- wood McLellan and Associ- ates, may be revised upwards, he says, in view cf recent in- creases in the estimated costs of the treatment plant. He asks that local industries be allowed time to study the new figures and prepare sub- missions to the city's engineer- ing department. A Sept. 14 date has been set by council for a meeting with industries to discuss the bylaw covering sewage charges and regulations. Council will also deal with a recommendation from the land sales committee that the city solicitor be authorized to begin expropriation proceedings for land in the riverbottom needed for sewer and road right-of- ways. Also up for discussion is draft of a resolution which, it approved, would be submitted to the October meeting of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association. The resolut i o n asks that the provincial gov- ernment provide "generous fi- nancial assistance" to those municipalities that have been ordered to improve their sew- age treatment facilities.
